The End of the World Was Just the Beginning of Sam’s Troubles
Sam Baahuhd has been the headman of the village for twenty-two years. He has the Voice and he has the Power. With them, he can control others with his speech and heal with a touch. Even with his powers, Sam has survived as the headman only because he’s tough and canny enough to keep his fellow villagers from murdering him. Together, they live on Veronica Edgarton’s estate in the Hamptons. Or they do until the nuclear Armageddon destroys the world.

The massive underground bomb shelter on the estate is intended for the planet’s intellectual elite. When Sam and his nearly 100 villagers find themselves moving into the high tech shelter, it’s a cosmic joke.

Despite living at the end of the 3rd millennium AD, the villagers are serf-like and their society is medieval. They can’t read, spend a lot of their time drunk or stoned, and are so inbred it’s a miracle they can put two coherent words together.

Now they are the heirs to the planet. Or at least their descendants will be in a couple thousand years when the radiation clears. If they don’t kill each other first.

Dragging a battered but beautiful female federal agent with him as the shelter’s massive steel doors close is not the best move Sam has ever made. Arthur Romero, a commando planted by the military, thinks she is seriously bad news. Arthur is the only non-villager and the only man who can run the shelter’s computers and life-support machinery. He wants her dead.

What’s worse, Sam loses his powers the minute he enters the shelter. It’s just a matter of time before the village thugs figure it out. If they gang up on him, he doesn’t have a prayer.

Sam has faced challenges before. He isn’t afraid of them. But he has never faced a challenge like the one that comes crashing in when he realizes he is in love with the wounded warrior woman he has named . . . Emily.

  1. I would like to win a kindle fire because there is tons of books that support it that a nook does not..and the books look SO good...urghhh..lol

  2. I'd love to win a Kindle Fire - I've been looking at Ebooks for the past year and can't decide which one would be best or whether they are really worth the expense. Winning one would make my decision for me.

  3. would be a best christmas gift ever! and because i looooooove reading!!!

  4. I would like to win the Kindle Fire because I have a Kindle3 3G (going on 2 years) and everyone wonders why I don't upgrade to a Fire, and also, my husband would probably use the Fire.

  5. I am a student, so carrying around all those books can get really hard! I need an ereader, but do not have the funds to get one right now :( It would be great if I won!

  6. Good luck to everyone! This is Sandy Nathan, author of Sam & Emily, today's featured book. I hope you take a moment to think about Sam & Emily, and the other two books in the Tales from Earth's End Saga. The books are all in print or eBook form right now, so you don't have to wait for the next book. Sam & Emily is my favorite, mainly because I fell in love with Sam Baahuhd when I was writing his story. He's as masculine a man as has ever existed. He's been stuck out in the country managing a great estate and hasn't had assess to the most basic things. Like education, for one thing. When the end of the world comes in The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy, book 1 of the series, Sam gets stuck again. This time in an underground bomb shelter. Join him and Emily as they make a new life.

  7. It's harder for me to read books or on the laptop, a kindle would be perfect!

  8. Because I am a book reviewer and it would be so much nicer to be able to accept ebooks easier plus I have always wanted one!! Thanks so much for a chance to win
